A few days after we moved into our new place, the stove mysteriously stops working.

Here’s a question, not quite tongue in cheek. How many Australians does it take to change a light bulb? At least three it seems.

First, it requires a someone to call out the fact that the light bulb is not working. Then the agent gets notified, who then calls an electrician to testify that the power is working. The agent then next calls the light bulb installer to come rectify the situation.

This is what we are currently experiencing with our stove stop, and electronic outdoor awning. Plumber and stove top manufacturers for the first instance, and the electrician and awning company for the second. Sigh.

Made the best of the situation though, and we went with a ceviche for dinner instead. No gas stove required! And at least the plumber helped us get new bayonet fixtures so we could set up the barbie, and no more rain in the forecast for the next few days!
